It gets even more complicated when kids learn about animals.

You miss the point.


The point is that we don't even know, and thus it is very hard to explain to a child.

Re: How do you explain to a child the miracle of existance
You might try taking away a few of the 'miracles', such as sight; have child close one eye, then both to see the 'miracle of sight; then with both eyes closed, use their hands to cover their ears; lastly, one MIGHT withdraw food for the next meal and remark about " Isn't it wonderful, a miracle we can see, hear and eat food and be alive to enjoy all the mysteries of life, EVERY DAY ?"

I appreciated food a lot more when my Dad told me at supper time to finish my plate, because " Your not getting any more food till NEXT YEAR. "

I cried, as eating was my favorite time of day, till my mother explained to me what New Years Eve means.

Dad had an unusual way of making jokes.

is there also a third, "The Mind"? how would that fit into a car analogy, all i can think of is the onboard management, adjusting the differential of the vehicle when we take corners too quickly.

This is how we teach children about life i agree, but doesn't teach about existance.


Look at Eagles post about isolating the senses, how do you explain the grand scale of the universe or nature without vision or speech.

You don't?

----

Because you grasp labels and slogans,
You are hindered by
Those labels and slogans,
Both those used in
Ordinary life and those
Considered sacred.
Thus they obstruct your
Perception of objective truth,
And you cannot understand clearly.
